Santa Treat Holder

This treat bag is a great Christmas party activity. Children can make Santa’s face and then take away a selection of Christmas treats in their creation.


2 plain paper plates
red construction card or craft
cotton wool
pink tissue (or pink paint)
pink pom pom


1. Brush a coat of glue over the back of one plate.

2. Layer the pink tissue all over the plate. Brush down each tissue piece
with more glue. Alternatively, paint the plate with pink acrylic.

3. Cut a hat shape from the red card and glue it to the top of the pink

4. Cut approximately 1/3 from the top of the other plate.

5. Staple the cut plate to the back of the face plate – so the top faces of
the plates are facing inwards.

6. Staple the ribbon or string to each side of the plates. Tie to secure.

7. Add Santa’s face. Here I have used white sticky dots, a black marker and a pink pom pom.
